You have messed the gears up in your rearend! I have seen on several occasions that the gears on the rear axle were striped! On your rear gear housing there is a screw at the bottom! Remove that screw and gear oil should run out! Let it drain completely! Put ur finger u Der the stream as it is draining and inspect for metal shavings! If there is metal shaving present u have something going on inside there! If the shavings are fine in nature more than likely you have stripped ur axle not that expensive if u diy! But if u can tell there are pretty good size shards in it then u busted gears! Expensive!!

SOURCE: Yamaha timberwolf wont start unless push started

You have a loose connection to the ignition system . When cranking make sure it is in neutral. and kill switch is in run position. The only thing dropping would sensibly affect is the fuel system or jarring a switch., but with the suspension you have there really is no jarring. So, I would ck the wiring. something is loose.

1999 Yamaha Timberwolf 250 will not turn over. Took it to someone they said it was stator. Replaced stator and spark plug still wont turn. There's no noise anywhere.

Hi, Anonymous and the usual suspects are:
1. Ignition Switch not in the "ON" position.
2. Engine Run Switch in the "OFF" position.
3. Discharged battery, needs to be 12.5 volts or better and be able to pass a load test if necessary.
4. Check the battery terminals for damage or corrosion check the battery cables at "BOTH" ends for loose, corroded, or broken connectors, "INSIDE" and outside the cable harness, perform connector wiggle test and check cables with an ohmmeter if necessary.
5. Tip over sensor needs a reset.
6. Faulty ignition switch.
7. Faulty starter button.
8. Faulty kickstand or clutch pull in switch/sensor.
9. Starter control circuit, relay, or solenoid faulty.
10. Main fuse or circuit breaker may be blown or faulty.
11. Check for engine trouble codes.

My yamaha timberwolf want go in gear I first started it up and put it in first gear it just jumped in and out of gear could it be my U-Join or my rear end???

Jumping out of gear is a transmission problem, possibly bent shift fork. Does it pop right back out of gear while sitting still? Or does it pop out of gear when you are going forward?

Yamaha timberwolf starts but when you put it in gear wont move sounds like chain is off but think its shaft driven what wrong with it

DT 360 is not shaft driven . Its chain driven .
Now if its making noises and not going anywhere , the chain may have jump the front sprocket and just knocks on the side cover making strange noises .
check it out and let me know how you go .
